Actually, I was a lifelong Democrat who had always pulled the D lever. I voted for Obama twice. In 2015 I finally realized the party had morphed into a Popular Front for Far-Left causes. It used to champion the working class. Now it condescendingly looks down on them as deplorables. Bill Clinton increased safety by funding more police. Today’s Democrats hate police, Black or White. Democrats were once staunchly opposed to Open Borders: todays Democrats find it racist to favor enforcement of immigration laws. Democrats used to favor jobs for Americans — todays Democrats don’t care if their weak trade deals and dubious Climate Change proposals leave our workers unemployed.
